Book Spotlight: Blood in the Bayou by Serena Pettus
Telepathy can be a real pain in the ass. Seline should know, she’s been dealing with it her whole life. Needless to say, dating sucks. Men really do seem to be single-minded creatures, but she really needs to find a man who she can use as her inspiration in the design of her fall fashion line. The only problem is that it’s slim pickings around home.
Taking a spur-of-the-moment trip to New Orleans seems like a superb idea…until she arrives and is viciously attacked by some drunken locals. Her savior, however, is tall, dark, and mysterious, possessing the most amazing aquamarine eyes she’s ever seen.
Christian is instantly taken with the enchanting woman he’s rescued. She is beautiful, sweet, and calls to him on a soul-deep level in a way he has never experienced in his long existence. As he tries to nurture their relationship and finds that she returns his feelings, his long ago ex-fling returns to stir things up. Lisbeth threatens to reveal his true nature to Seline before he is able to. The fact he is a vampire is a secret guarded so closely that should Seline discover it, she would have to either undergo the turn or be killed.
True love, though, can produce miracles, and circumstances arise that prevent Seline from undergoing the change to vampire, but Lisbeth is poised to strike. She has no intention of giving Christian over to his new lover.
In the heart of the bayou, can their love survive, or will the darkness lurking in the shadows of New Orleans extinguish its flame forever?
